House catch-up

Here is a lovely picture of me from when I was in the emergency room with the flu. They take this stuff seriously now!

Moving this past weekend! Shout out to the mama! She has helped me with every move. She is pretty much a life saver.

Managed to get some meal prep in! Mojito Pork Chops from a Home Chef meal box.

Just ordered this since currently our mail gets left to the side of the front door or on the counter and days later we realize one of them is a bill. Time to organize!

The coffee bar is slowly coming along! and check out the pretty flowers from my backyard!

We planted our first tree! Yep that large twig is a tree, a pear tree to be exact. Hopefully in about 2-3 years it will start producing many pears for us.

We also got 1 fig plant planted as well as 5-6 raspberry plants.

I have biodegradable seed pot starting things arriving tonight so I can get my seed starts done and just plant the whole thing in the ground in a month instead of having to take them out of the starts for transplanting.

I can’t wait to see how my garden grows!

Week catch-up 

Monday I had 4 miles on my schedule but my IT band was still so tight even after rolling it twice so I got 1 miles done then switched to the elliptical machine for the last 3. More foam rolling needs to happen. 

My roommates dog joined me for a little studying and I got 2 letters written and in the mailbox to friends. 

I have used this torture device about 4 times so far this past week. It is definitely helping but I haven’t completely released the muscle. A few more rolls and I should be good. 

Got my organics2you box!!! There was so much stuff in it!

These blood oranges have been awesome because of course I got sick!!! Ugh. Th3 cold finally got me. 

This onion is huge!!! It’s the size of like 3 normal ones!!

Red cabbage, really nice and crisp 

Dill

Celery root

Watercress 

Bananas

Lettuce

Fuji apples

Carrots

Green onions

Beautiful yukon gold potatoes

Then I kept finding more and more potatoes at the bottom of the box.

So far I have made veggie pasta (it is a recipe from alicia Silverstone’s cookbook called rustic pasta) and veggie stir-fry with yakisoba noodles. 

Tonight I’m making veggie fried rice. 

How was your week?

Blue Apron day 2 and studying

Happy Hump day!!! The week is now more than half over, woot woot!!

This morning I got the call that i wasn’t needed for package delivery today…….HALLELUJAH!!!!!! My right forearm and right butt cheek have noce bruises on them from a good fall yesterday.  

I got to relax and sort of sleep in this morning then make myself a delicious breakfast sandwich. 

After that came studying. I was actually really looking forward to studying today hahahaha. 

I got through one module then took a break and did the reading on a second module. I got up to cook my Blue Apron meal.

There are short lecture videos and activities that come with studying so I did a little multitasking 

Yep, I had videos playing while I cooked. 

I got through 2 entire modules and a practice midterm today. 

Here is the finished food product 

In the PM I started to read one of my mom’s presents to me

I am so excited to garden this year. It will be a noce break between working and studying. 

And I am soooo looking forward to all the amazing meals I will be able to cook with fresh food. The amazing boyfriend has agreed to help me with the garden as well 🙂 added bonus. 

Have you ever had straight off the vine/branch/stem/out of the ground food? 

Stitchfix #2!!!!

K first i have to show you this sunflowe in a can i got at target

image

I have followed the directions and…..

image

It’s sprouting!!! So excited!

image

My coworker lent me the knome….nome…how do you spell that?

Ok now the good stuff, the stitchfix!!!

My stylist nailed it this time!!!!!! It was so hard not to keep it all!

So first there were magenta crop pants which thankfully were a little too small or i may have kept the whole order and got the 5 peice 25% discount. Obviously i sent them back.

image

I actually really liked this purse but i tend to use one purse until its falling apart before i buy another one so i sent it back.

image

I did really like this blazer as well, but i have 2 blazers so i couldn’t justify buying it.

Now for the 2 items i did keep…….

image

I love the pattern on this and the fit. I kept this.

image

This was my favorite thing! The pattern is so fun and great for spring. And sooooo comfortable. Its stretchy material.

So i kept those 2 items and my $20 styling fee went toward these.

What do you think?
